Frame of the Virgin Mary

Frame of the Virgin Mary  The object I chose for this project is a frame of the Virgin Mary. This object is very important to my family because my dad’s friend sent it to him. What’s special about this frame is that even though this guy was going through some hard things, he decided to make this beautiful frame for my dad. My dad’s friend was in prison when he made this frame. He is a very talented guy that does picture frames in prison. This work of art also has a lot of feelings behind it. The fact that someone sends you these type of things while their having some hard time is amazing. Currently, this frame is at home in a wall of the dining room. Every time we see it, it represents us as a family because it says, “Familia Sanchez.” 

Place(s): House(in dining room) and in prison
